Wighton is a quiet hamlet and a perfect base for exploring the impressive Norfolk coastline, just a couple of miles from the nearby seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea where fun days out can be enjoyed by all the family. Enjoy a spot of crabbing by the harbour and admire the sailing boats where the changing tides display the yachts and vessels amongst the soft sands. Take a stroll to the beach along the harbour footpath or hop aboard the narrow gauge steam railway where you’re rewarded with views of colourful beach huts decorating the sands elevated against a woodland backdrop. You may even spot a seal or two often seen basking at the water’s edge. Pop into the beach café for lunch or French’s for the best fish and chips around - there are plenty of traditional and independent shops too, with fruit and veg shops displaying their wares, plus galleries amongst the pretty lanes. With so many wonderful places to visit nearby why not take a short drive to the current home of the Earl of Leicester; Holkham Hall. Youngsters will enjoy scaling heights of the adventure playground, zipping down the ‘zip’ wire beneath the treetops or perhaps a gentle row on the boating lake. Why not take advantage of on-site bicycle hire at Holkham or in Wighton village at ‘On Yer Bike’ cycle hire close-by and admire Holkham’s red deer herd on two wheels!


This Cottage was perfect for our group of 5 adults and 1 child, we had lots of space and really loved the contemporary design and comfort at Orchard Barn. The outside garden was really useful as the main gates locked which was essential with a young child. We could fit 2 cars on the drive (1 was a Fiat 500) but there is also space over the road for another car. We would have liked the use of a BBQ but that is my only critique.
